    Yes, when it's because of software like most of battery life issues are, a software reset will certainly fix it, but if it's an app and/or a combination of an app and some settings and you do the same than the first time after the reset, it will most likely comeback.

    Wipe cache Partition is done via the Recovery Menu and it's not power and volume down, is Volume up-Home-Power button.
    so are you saying that this is a guessing game? i have to guess which combination of disabling apps and turning on/off random settings gives me the best battery? lol as someone who used iPhone for 8 years, i'm loving every bit of this phone except the battery problem. i think it's ridiculous.

    i will try your cache method as last option, if not, i will be requesting a new phone from att.

    Surprisingly my battery today hit over 5 hours SOT while at work. I have been playing games such as madden NFL, CSR2 racing, and CoC. Also used GPS whole day today (my job needs gps) and browsed a little. Overall this is the longest it has lasted me in these past days. I think it's all based on area signal.

    Came across this app that looks like it records your daily SOT for you! Does some calculations for expected SOT too... might come in handy!

    It's a guessing game for you maybe that have problems, but not for everybody and certainly not for me that even with a new Axon 7 I'm having great battery life, the same I've been having for the past 3 or 4 phones in a row and for the past couple of years with Samsung phones. My Axon, today, in a normal working day with tons of emails, sms, a couple of videos, 45 minutes of calls and some browsing here and in other forums, I've had 4 hours of SOT with 47% battery left, almost 8 hours of SOT on average just a little more than what I'm getting with my S7 edge, about an hour more than what I had with the Note 5 and I'm sure I can get roughly about 7- 7.5 with a Note 7 should I decide to get it.

    The key is to know that Android is different than iOS, if you have the mentality of not wanting to remove bloat, disable unused services and apps and having the brightness at full throttle all the time then sorry, you'll be running back to iOS soon.

    You should compare apples to apples, not a 1080p or 720p smaller screens on iPhones, not running the tons of services that Android runs in the background by default with the feature rich and QuadHD 5.7" screen with up to 1040 nits of brightness on the Note 7, you want better battery life, you must avoid rogue apps, remove bloatware, disable running unused services and adjust your brightness and you'll see the difference while you enjoy the best Samsung phone ever and one of the best if not the best all around smartphone you can buy today.

    Have you deleted an app today? I think it takes the place of the app's name of recently deleted/disabled apps.

    those of you with good battery life, what the hell did you do? ugh
    The snapdragon is noticeably worse than the exynos variant for battery life. Which may be the cause of discrepancies.

    Yup. I am not impressed by SD820 at all. I considered getting an international version just to get exynos, but the no warranty thing scared me.

    I charged it to 100% before going to sleep and I just woke up to 82% battery :hsugh:

    Down to 80% with 35 min screen time. Doing nothing but browsing the internet.

    35mins x 5 = less than 3hrs

    WTF

    Yeah this battery life is the only thing that killing me right now. Idk if it's the phase of me still messing with it or what but I took the phone off the charger and didn't mess with it one bit on my commute to with this morning and it dropped a percentage, just for nothing. So we will see.

    One point drop after a commute is not bad. Even more if in weak signal area LTE and data being used in background. Plus the sensors if on, blue tooth, etc. Were you being sarcastic?

    Battery life goes up at least an hour for me just adjusting the display to 1080p and the display STILL looks better than the iPhone 6+. Just like on the 6+ you lose clarity on tiny text, but easy to change back to 1440p. Also, if you limit data function as well, you basically have an iPhone level device in regards to background tasks.

    In medium settings, disable the display and cpu power savings- then you essentially have an iPhone, Sammy style. FWIW. Battery life is then equal to or better than the iPhone 6+.

    Haha nah I wasn't being sarcastic as all but I feel it shouldn't drop a percentage that fast if I'm not doing anything. I have been on it I guess with heavy usage and it's already down to 90℅. I guess time will tell because right now I'm not too sure.

    I refuse to scale a phone down to have great battery life. Defeats the whole purpose.

    I don't think he was suggesting you to do that, I think he was just telling you that if you want to compare apples to apples then you can scale down the Note 7 to 1080p and together with the other adjustments you can basically compare apples to apples when comparing a Note 7 and iPhone 6s+.

    That is the point, but I will use the medium setting if out for long time and know will not be able to charge. Medium setting is HUGE for battery life savings and minimal performance impact. The cool thing is you can tweak it to what you want. I do notice the savings estimate grossly understates the actual savings- if using GPU heavy apps the actual savings is better than the estimate.

    Based on your picture, it looks like you have bad signal. This kills battery a lot. So it won't matter if you switch phones.
